We could all meet at Pelikans with our rollers or trainers and do the 100 miles there.

Let's here it now, 1hundo2nowhere party at Pelikan's.

Why not do it somewhere scenic? Drag a bunch of rollers and trainers up to the top of Diablo or Hamilton and ride a hundred miles in the parking lot there!

Or maybe just out in a field somewhere. That'd be a sight.

I was thinking of trying to see if any other SF Folk wanted to meet up at GGP, Polo Fields or something.

If you take your roller or trainer and put it on a cart, then run a pulley from to the wheels, you could move around while you spin! It would be so cool, like a mobile-stationary bike. Then you could ride it up Diablo, instead of just spinning up on top. I'll bet coming down would be fun too!

It'd be like another level of complication on top of this!

Hmm, I have a 3.2 mile, 850' loop right by my house. If I do that 31 times in a row it will be a 26000' century!
